Spiritual Leadership

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green opens Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders to answer the question: Are leaders born, or can anyone learn to be a leader?


There are a very small number of people who innately know how to lead; but the majority of us need equipping, mentoring, and encouragement to succeed. The need to know how to lead is expressed in 2 Timothy 2:12, where the Bible declares “Believers will reign with Christ.”  The training is now for the eternal destiny that we have been afforded.  There will be a  constant state of learning for the true leader, however, the character that leads is formed here and now. The most important character quality of a great leader is HUMILITY.

Watching a leader in action is a good way to learn; because a leader who does not take advice is NOT a leader. A true leader is a godly servant who knows where he is going, inspiring others and equipping others to follow.

SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP will lay out the principles and applications of how to become a leader created and guided by the Holy Spirit, as it is the leader’s responsibility to make sure the people understand complex issues with simplicity.


This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green pulls Humility by Andrew Murray from the shelf.


One of the best definitions of humility is one by today’s author, Andrew Murray.  This man’s life reflected what he wrote.  He has described HUMILITY as:

“Perfect quietness of heart.  It is to have no trouble, not to be fretted or vexed or irritated or sore or disappointed.”

“It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me.  It is to be at  rest when nobody praises me, and when I am  blamed or despised.”

“It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace as in a deep-sea of calmness when all around and above is trouble.  It is the fruit of the Lord Jesus Christ’s redemptive work on Calvary’s Cross, made known in those of His own who are definitely subject to the Holy Spirit.”

This cannot be head knowledge, it must be a life lived in the power of Another, tested and tried on a regular basis, so that it becomes a part of your character and a continual habit. What held true in the day and ministry of Andrew Murray is still as relevant and needed today as in the days of old.
